Senator Warren says GOP health care plan is 'fundamentally cruel'

House Speaker Paul Ryan with President Donald Trump

"It was said many, many times, and it turned out to be not true".

Another plan introduced in the House of Representatives to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act has been bestowed quite a unique title.

Trump officials are trying to gain more support from Republicans - especially from Sen. It was a central campaign issue in 2016.

Friday's push by the president and vice president comes after two fresh and substantial legislative victories in the house. Under the proposal, penalties for people who do not buy health insurance would be scrapped, the amount that individuals can contribute to health savings accounts would be expanded and subsidies for those with modest incomes would be eliminated.

The fate of the bill will end up being determined by whether or not the coterie of conservative Republicans who think the bill is too generous in helping people buy health insurance can come to agreement with the moderate ones who balk at taking health care away from millions of their constituents. He argued Republicans either have to pass this specific bill or take responsibility for the negative effects of Obamacare. It would also delay a tax on high-cost employer-provided insurance known as "Cadillac" plans until 2025. But it said can not support the Republican effort to repeal and replace major provisions of the law. Instead, it focuses on the areas that enabled 20 million Americans to get some type of coverage following the enactment of the ACA, which is also called Obamacare. About half of Obamacare enrollees obtained insurance through the expansion.

At that point, the GOP bill would change the funding formula for Medicaid, making it easier to cut the program's expenditures in future years.

The majority of New Yorkers in the exchange are on Medicaid, the health-insurance program for the poor and disabled. That fulfills a Republican promise to return more control to the states, as they can decide what their Medicaid plans must cover.

And there is no more urgent problem than Obamacare. It would maintain provisions that allow those under 26 to remain on their parents' health plans and prevent insurers from denying coverage for pre-existing conditions.

"In contrast, a 50-year-old with a gap in coverage of the same length would be charged $96 more than a younger person per month, or $1,154 more over 12 months, for a total of $2,161". Under Obamacare, they could only charge up to three times more. For some reason, Republicans allowed Democratic President Barack Obama to steal the concept and make it his own.

Under the ACA, the value of the credits that any given consumer receives to purchase health insurance is dependent on both that consumer's income and the cost of a silver-level health insurance plan in their state - low-income consumers in high-cost states receive larger credits than their counterparts in low-cost states.
